El Grito or Mexican Independence Day

September 17, 2014 § Leave a comment

On September 16 in 1810 under the supervision of Miguel Hidalgo the United Mexican State declared war against the colonial king Spain. 11 years later in 1821 they could call themselves an independent nation. Today, 204 years later this day is still celebrated with great conviction and love for the country.

Yesterday I had the chance to join the event, meaning thousands of people in the main square, concerts, the famous speech by Hidalgo held by the city governor, lights everywhere and a fulminant firework display lasting over half an hour.

It was simply impressive!
